The Yak

The Yak is a group animal originated in the hilly areas of central Asia. Yak tends to meet in herds from 10 yaks to 100 yaks, largely of which are female. There are only some male yaks per group. Although there is a huge domestic inhabitant of yak, there are only a few wild yaks remaining. The yak is still used in several parts of central Asia, for pulling weighty farm equipments and transporting big loads through the peak passes.
The normal male yak can raise to about 2 meters tall, with the female yak being about 1/3 the size of the male yak. All yak have very lengthy hair to stay them hot. Yak belongs to the identical cow family as the Asian water buffalo, the American bison and the African buffalo. However, yak is a little more similar to the American bison in appearance as both yak and the bison have lengthy hair in order to withstand the colder weathers, the bison of the North American winters and yak of the mid-Asian mountains.
Yak is an herbivore and spends a big deal of time on green plains in the mountains grazing on grasses, sages and wild flowers like other species of cow. In a comparable way to other cow group yak has above one stomach which the yak uses to effectively get all of the nutrients out of the floras that it eats.
